Tag & Artist Trading Card

Hi Everyone,
Sharing a Tag & Artist Trading Card I created for a swap with Viva Las Vegas Stamps Forum which anyone can join. They share stamping techniques, tips and have open discussions on stamping. 
I used the 'Bird Head' stamp by Designer Mary Vogel Lozinak on the tag along with a 'Zentangle' stamp by Designer Sandra Strait both available at Viva Las VegaStamps! You can look on the tabs for the sections of interest. And FYI..they are having free shipping for the month of October and check out their Facebook page
I am hooked on and love using this 'Bird Head' stamp and love what USArtquest watercolors does with the detailed design. I used embossing powder once stamped and also used the same 'Bird Head' stamp to create a design on the sides using the top of the 'Bird Head'. I embossed the tag with Cuttlebug 'Dots' & 'Numbers' folders and then used Tsukinek Walnut & Eucalyptus spray Antiquing Solution to make the embossing pop. I placed some score lines between the embossed 'Dots' and the other techniques.
The flowers were created with the McGill 'Floral Petals/Rose' Punch.
I did a lot more watercoloring with USArtQuest on the Artist Trading Card. The sentiment and the background stamps are also found in the Viva Las VegaStamps! Store/Online. The background stamp is a Zentangle stamp designed by Sandra Strait. I have to show you this one on its own along with one of Sandra's Zentangle art pieces she has done. SHe is on Facebook under Life Imitates Doodles.

Hope you enjoyed my sharing..Until next time this Frugal Grannie is out.
